Summaries for PRPF8 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for PRPF8 Gene

  • Pre-mRNA splicing occurs in 2 sequential transesterification steps. The protein encoded by this gene is a component of both U2- and U12-dependent spliceosomes, and found to be essential for the catalytic step II in pre-mRNA splicing process. It contains several WD repeats, which function in protein-protein interactions. This protein has a sequence similarity to yeast Prp8 protein. This gene is a candidate gene for autosomal dominant retinitis pigmentosa. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]

GeneCards Summary for PRPF8 Gene

PRPF8 (Pre-MRNA Processing Factor 8) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with PRPF8 include retinitis pigmentosa 13 and prpf8-related retinitis pigmentosa. Among its related pathways are Gene Expression and mRNA Splicing - Major Pathway. GO annotations related to this gene include poly(A) RNA binding and protein heterodimerization activity.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for PRPF8 Gene

  • Functions as a scaffold that mediates the ordered assembly of spliceosomal proteins and snRNAs. Required for the assembly of the U4/U6-U5 tri-snRNP complex. Functions as scaffold that positions spliceosomal U2, U5 and U6 snRNAs at splice sites on pre-mRNA substrates, so that splicing can occur. Interacts with both the 5 and the 3 splice site.

    Quaternary structure:
    • Part of the U5 snRNP complex. Component of the U4/U6-U5 tri-snRNP complex composed of the U4, U6 and U5 snRNAs and at least PRPF3, PRPF4, PRPF6, PRPF8, PRPF31, SNRNP200, TXNL4A, SNRNP40, DDX23, CD2BP2, PPIH, SNU13, EFTUD2, SART1 and USP39. Component of the U5.U4atac/U6atac snRNP complexes in U12-dependent spliceosomes. Found in a mRNA splicing-dependent exon junction complex (EJC) with SRRM1. Interacts with U5 snRNP proteins SNRP116 and SNRNP40. Interacts with EFTUD2 and SNRNP200.

PRP8_HUMAN :
  • The MPN (JAB/Mov34) domain has structural similarity with deubiquitinating enzymes, but lacks the residues that would bind the catalytic metal ion.
Domain:
  • The MPN (JAB/Mov34) domain has structural similarity with deubiquitinating enzymes, but lacks the residues that would bind the catalytic metal ion.
  • Contains a region with structural similarity to reverse transcripase, presenting the classical thumb, fingers and palm architecture, but lacks enzyme activity, since the essential metal-binding residues are not conserved.
  • Contains a region with structural similarity to type-2 restriction endonucleases, but the residues that would bind catalytic metal ions in endonucleases are instead involved in hydrogen bonds that stabilize the protein structure.
  • Contains a region with structural similarity to RNase H, but lacks RNase H activity.
  • Contains 1 MPN (JAB/Mov34) domain.

  • Retinitis pigmentosa 13 (RP13) [MIM:600059]: A retinal dystrophy belonging to the group of pigmentary retinopathies. Retinitis pigmentosa is characterized by retinal pigment deposits visible on fundus examination and primary loss of rod photoreceptor cells followed by secondary loss of cone photoreceptors. Patients typically have night vision blindness and loss of midperipheral visual field. As their condition progresses, they lose their far peripheral visual field and eventually central vision as well. {ECO:0000269 PubMed:11468273, ECO:0000269 PubMed:11910553, ECO:0000269 PubMed:12714658, ECO:0000269 Ref.33}.
